In her roles as a motivational storyteller, engaging Amazon Top 100 author, and Internet radio show host, Jen McDonough aka The Iron Jen, motivates, encourages, and inspires audiences to overcome their obstacles to become their greatest selves. Jen and her family are known for paying off over $212,000 worth of debt and medical expenses in only four years. Their story has been featured in local, national and international media. Jen is also an 8-time national weightlifter and 2-time US Olympic Festival medal winner as well as an Ironman triathlete.
Highlights from the Interview:

Her great advice to prevent you from holding yourself back “You don’t have to be good at anything to be great.”
How a medical situation threw Jen and her family into huge debt. They relied on credit cards to the point of paying with them for groceries, and were spiraling down fast.
Completing a class given by Dave Ramsey helped them move into erasing their debt – but this is no fairy tale! Jen and her husband struggled to be on the same foot, and they eventually came together to make it work.
Jen discusses her EMS system that helps her succeed at whatever she attempts. EMBRACE reality, MOVE incrementally forward, SNATCH the opportunity presented to you.
